WhatIWore: Last week I posted about a dress that I bought because it looked like a thrift shop find and in the same order I picked up today’s blue printed maxi… for a similar reason! This has a sort of 1970s hostess dress appeal and I really like mixing fabrications like floaty chiffon and buttery leather. Case in point, check out some of my past hard and soft pairings here, here and here. I’ve recently rearranged my gallery by year, so if you’re killing time, you might like to see what I wore back in the day! My style has evolved yet stayed the same in a lot of ways. I’m so happy to have documented all of these outfits! I’m coming up on 9 years of daily photos this May!
When: February 29, 2016 LEAP DAY!

Where: Coffee Shop Morning (and later errands to the grocery and fabric store)
I’m really getting tempted to pack away my winter closet before I leave for spring break. The weather here is most definitely ahead of schedule and as I look at all of my wooly knits, I can’t bare to layer them on. I’d rather be a bit chilly at this stage in the game! What about you? Do you keep your year round closet all in one place or do you switch things out seasonally? I like putting things away because it feels so fun to unpack them 6 months later. And some of you might remember me saying that I couldn’t wear a lot of my favorite dresses because they didn’t have easy breastfeeding access… well… I’ve missed them and can’t wait to steam ‘em up and arrange them in my closet!
